UK Inequality


The richest 1% of households in the UK each have fortunes of at least £3.6m.

At the other end of the scale, the poorest 10% of households have just £15,400 or less, with almost half burdened with more debts than they had in assets.

The wealthiest 10% of households held 43% of all the wealth in Great Britain 

The bottom 50% held only 9%.

There are an estimated 27.8m households in the UK. There are just 263,000 in the top 1%.
